Although dubbed the “Man Cave,” designer Chrisann Rodrigues’ newest mission—a 450-square-foot bachelor pad in Khar, Mumbai—is refreshingly devoid of stereotypically masculine accoutrements equivalent to cumbersome leather-based chairs or a larger-than-life leisure middle. “He’s a minimalist by way of life and a sucker for element,” says the founding father of Eight Diploma Design Home of her consumer, “So we targeted on a design rooted in minimalism and luxury.”
The Mumbai residence was a “typical one bed room” when it was handed over to Chrisann. The architect started by tearing down the wall dividing the lounge and kitchen to open up the area. Subsequent, clear traces, a impartial colour palette, and sparse however fastidiously curated decor accents had been chosen as the muse of the design language. “We needed to create an area that was clutter-free, simple going, and but refined. The consumer’s love for vegetation and pure supplies was undoubtedly the leaping off level for us,” she explains.
Swing open the entrance door and also you stroll right into a front room that’s the image of zen with a minimalist, crisp-lined couch and flat display TV perched on a slim floating shelf. The sturdy traces are offset by the curves of the espresso desk, a pair of planters, and a textured jute rug. Chrisann changed the wall that beforehand divided the residing space and kitchen with a slender breakfast desk that’s good for fast morning meals or as a comfy little bar for 2 come sunset.
“We’ve used solely Canadian pine wooden for all of the furnishings in the home and black steel accents in some locations. Whether or not it’s the furnishings or gentle fittings, each thoughtfully chosen element, texture and tone contributes to the fashionable aesthetic of this residence,” the architect notes.
